Water is H2O, hydrogen two parts, oxygen one, but there is also a third thing that makes water,
and nobody knows what that is.

the Root of the Wind is Water


I think that the Root of the Wind is Water --
It would not sound so deep
Were it a Firmamental Product --
Airs no Oceans keep --

Mediterranean intonations --
To a Current's Ear --
There is a maritime conviction
In the Atmosphere --

–Emily Dickinson
